The shark is finished. I'm not posting photos of it in case the intended recipient gets spoiled. However, those of you on Ravelry can enjoy many photos that I took of the finished project. I'll post the details once the gift is unwrapped. I am so relieved it's done. That was a lot of stocking stitch to knit!
As I mentioned before- I just had a sock set to finish.
On the upside the leg knit fast. In fact, delightfully fast. But now- I'm deep DEEEEP in throes of second sock syndrome. I could not want to knit anything less than the half a sock I have to knit. I didn't like where I ended up on the heel and so ended up ripped out the entire heel after I knit the whole thing last night. It seems whenever I make a mistake my "mojo" just evaporates. *POOF* this project made me think hard/made me feel dumb... I don't want to knit you.
It also appears that *someone* would prefer it if they were his socks....
[In general the cats are proving to be handknit fans... they love the blanket MiL knit for my son. (His beloved "cold blankey".)]
I will finish the sock. I will. No. REALLY. I will. I WILL FINISH THESE. But I wonder if part of my distraction comes from the fact that I'm looking at a busy knitting year coming up. I won't add them to the list now- but I have FIVE baby hat/bootie sets to knit by the end of spring. FIVE. Plus there are 3 baby blankets that are also going to need to be done. In general- I'm going to be BUSY BUSY. *
Anyways- enough whining about the socks... back to the grind. To leave you on a happier note- I give you Parker's return to skating this past weekend. ("I'm making ice angels mommy!")
* do you like how I'm complaining about things I'm making myself do? I must like to torment myself...
